The Latest in Skin Resurfacing Technology

Our advanced Sciton laser system enables Dr. Ablon to program a specific system treatment plan for each patient. Unlike microdermabrasion, which only removes the outer 10 microns on the skin surface, the Sciton laser can remove aged and sun-damaged tissue to depths of 300 microns.  This allows for the treatment of many unwanted skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, skin laxity, keratoses, and pigmentary problems with limited downtime.

Erbium Laser Resurfacing

The Erbium laser is a way to restore your skin to a softer, smoother, more youthful appearance utilizing a method of technology that is safer, more accurate and less painful. The Erbium laser skin resurfacing procedure specifically removes superficial and moderately deep lines and wrinkles on the face. This innovative Erbium laser allows Dr. Ablon to gently remove damaged skin cells with less heating and burning of surrounding tissues. Most cases require only a local or topical anesthetic. The results of the Erbium laser have also shown production of  new collagen, creating a tightening and smoothing of the skin. Skin resurfacing with the Erbium laser cool light results in less redness, swelling and provides a more rapid healing than with other skin resurfacing methods. For the first few days following the procedure the treated areas are kept moist with ointment. Most patients are fully recovered and back to normal activities within 7 to 10 days. In the weeks following your Erbium resurfacing your fresh, new, pink skin will fade to a normal tone revealing a softer, smoother, younger look. The Erbium laser resurfacing treatment usually requires only one session to achieve your optimum results.

MicroLaserPeel

The MicroLaserPeel is an intra-epidermal laser peel that precisely ablates the outermost layers of the skin.  The procedure is individually tailored to the nature of the condition to be corrected.  Skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, keratoses, or pigmentary problems have been very successfully treated with a MicroLaserPeel.  The MicroLaserPeel procedure will give you smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, with a significant, immediate change in skin texture and tightness.  The healing process after this laser takes about 3 to 5 days.  Symptoms immediately following the procedure resemble a sunburn, with minor sloughing on the second day.  The redness will begin to fade by the third to fifth day and you can usually resume normal activities by the fifth day after the laser treatment.  The MicroLaserPeel procedure consists of 2 to 3 treatments spaced about one month apart to achieve your optimum results.

Profractional Laser Treatment

Sciton‘s ProFractional™ works on the principle of fractionated photothermolysis. The laser is able to penetrate deeply into the dermis by ablating narrow, clean channels to a selected depth and instantly removing necrotic tissue. These channels are surrounded by healthy tissue, speeding healing time and reducing downtime for the patient. As opposed to non-ablative technologies, which create large zones of thermal necrosis, ProFractional energy delivery is limited to the narrow channels, minimizing patient discomfort. The ProFractional laser treatment requires little or no anesthesia, fewer treatment sessions and offers results comparable to more aggressive treatments.  The healing process takes only one to two days and during this phase the skin will resemble a minor sunburn.  The Profractional laser treatment usually requires one to three sessions at intervals of one month apart to achieve your optimum results.

Combination procedures (fillers, botulinum toxin and lasers) will afford you the greatest overall results.
